Apple likes to throw around the term "Retina Display" when talking about products that have a high resolution panel, but nothing in Apple's lineup wields as many pixels as Samsung's Ativ Book 9 Plus Ultrabook. This thing trots onto the scene with a 13.3-inch panel boasting a QHD+ (3200x1800) native resolution, all while offering up 10-point touch support for good measure.

Beyond the display, the Ativ Book 9 Plus features an Intel Core i5 4200U processor (Haswell) clocked at 1.6GHz, 4GB of DDR3-1600 RAM, 128GB solid state drive (SSD), integrated Intel HD Graphics 4400, 3-in-1 media card reader, 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, webcam, microphone, integrated speakers, and Windows 8 64-bit.

The system measures 12.5 inches by 0.5 inches by 8.7 inches and weighs just 2.56 pounds. It's every bit an Ultrabook, just with a much higher resolution. We're still waiting on an official word from Samsung regarding price and availability, though it's been spotted on B&H for $1,400 with an expected availability date of August 20, 2013.
